Here’s a description of the new film, which is scheduled to open on June 6, 2008.

Oscar-nominated actor John C. Reilly (“Chicago,” “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”) and Seann William Scott (“American Pie”) lend their deft comedic touch to the story of two mid-level Chicago supermarket employees – Doug and Richard (a dubious new guy from Canada) – who compete ruthlessly for a coveted managerial post.

Doug and Richard couldn’t be more different, but going head to head in a contest of wits and will reveals how they have more in common than they thought. The duo battle toward a hilarious final showdown that will leave you guessing until the very end. The film is the directorial debut of Steve Conrad (writer of “The Pursuit of Happyness”).

Who's the Funny Man?

This is Bina Pandya….and I think without a doubt……most inappropriately, John C. Reily….just saw Walk Hard last week and this man’s comic timing is impeccable as well as being the closest thing to Will Ferell! Sean William Scott is just a filler (like Tod on Scrubs) who constantly seeks attention and only gets it by making sexual inneundos.
